ECP Therapy acts as an external “cardiac assist device” helping the heart perform more efficiently with little effort or stress during treatment. This treatment process deliver oxygen-rich blood to all vital organs inside the body including the heart. This process overtime improves the mechanical operation of the heart delivering more cardiac output (stronger heart) with less effort resulting in a more efficient vascular system

The mechanical process of External Counterpulsation Therapy systematically restores nourishment to areas of the body that have slowly deteriorated over time with age. With the restoration of oxygen-rich blood flow (nutrients to tissue) to all of your organ will result in a significant improvement in overall health. ECP rehabilitation therapy brings improvement in function of the heart, liver, kidneys, brain, eyes, and all your outer extremities that need nutrients for sustaining efficient function.


  • Increase oxygen supply to the heart.
  • Decrease chest pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
  • Increase exercise tolerance.
  • Improve blood circulation.
  • Improve sugar control in diabetic patient.
  • Improve erectile dysfunctions.

What Conditions Can Therapy Treat?

Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) Treatment is one of the leading treatments for heart disease.

  • Stable coronary artery disease
  • Patients experiencing angina (Chest, jaw, shoulder, back, arm discomfort)
    Considering an elective angiogram
  • Patients NOT amenable to stent or bypass surgery (microvascular disease, complex blockages/lesions, or coronary spasm disease)
  • A failed heart stent or bypass surgery
  • Circulatory disorders
    Ischemic stroke
  • Risk factors for cardiovascular disease (ie. hypertension, diabetes…etc)
  • Cardiac rehabilitation post heart attack

Who Should Not Receive ECP Therapy?

There are number of conditions and situations which may prevent patients from being eligible to have Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) treatment. These include patients with:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clot within a blood vessel)
  • Heart failure
  • Heart valve disease
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • An inability of the blood to coagulate (clot)
  • Pacemakers
  • Phlebitis (inflammation of a vein)
  • Pregnancy
  • Uncontrolled arrhythmia (altered heart rhythm)

ECP Therapy Procedure

  1. Blood pressure cuffs are placed around your calves, thighs and buttock.
  2. An EKG triggers the cuffs to inflate and deflate in sync with your own heart beat.
  3. During the heart’s resting phase, when the body is receiving the blood supply, the cuffs inflate, pushing oxygen-rich blood toward your heart.
  4. As your heart begins pumping again, the cuffs deflate allowing your heart to pump normally.

Effects Of Ecp Therapy

Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) Treatment helps grow new blood vessels around blocked arteries acting like a natural bypass for the heart.
